+Eugene Madatov brings back a memory of a catastrophic event ...
April 26. 1986 a day which will always be remembered, the day the reactor melted down in Tchernobyl. Just a few days later a town called Pripyat was evacuated completely .. 
A town which looks today like the aftermath of the nuclear apocalypse.
Once a little child played with this metal toy in front of Lenin but now .... enjoy the the apocalyptic view.
Enjoy the atmosphere and leave all comments on the original post. 
The Cause
Pripyat', Ukraine
A Soviet school, just like one I used to go to. This photograph depicts the cause - Lenin and communism, and the result - an abandoned toy. The disaster happened because of the 70 years of the illness inflicted by the guy on the wall. The communist party hierarchy pressure  forced the station's engineers to overload the reactor to delivery more power in the name of The Guy On The Wall. Fuel rods were overheated and stuck inside the main zone, melted and uncontrolled nuclear reaction caused the explosion with devastating consequences you all know. I do not know why this disaster is felt the most in places like this - elementaryies and schools. The truck symbolizes the movement from socialistic revolution to the nuclear hell. And I think I have a right to write such loaded paragraphs because I was born and raised in this country. It was my main purpose to visit the zone - to see post-apocalyptic Soviet Union I used to live in.

A Panorama by +Rene Schmidt of an abandoned Villa to capture the complete main hall. 
The framing and lightening are masterful as usual. 
The old glory and beauty now decaying is brought back by the muted tones of just a few colours paired with the light falling from the windows and doors into this hall.

Welcome to  #tuesdecay  , starting today with a picture by +Eugene Madatov. A very peaceful picture with a wonderful composition of only a few elements and colours. A green plant, white chair, some yellow and red bricks in a grey wall which seems to crumble down.
The light falling from the left through the scene sets a great atmosphere of loneliness.

The Brick Fire
Pripyat', Ukraine
Hotel Poles'e is situated on the main square of the city. During the disaster mitigation was used as one of the headquarters for planning measures to prevent nuclear explosion and to decontaminate the area.

The desk in the corner, forgotten in this labyrinth of light and shadow. The atmosphere of light in this wonderful framed picture by +Amy Heiden is just fantastic. The light falling from the windows through the doors and the doors opening the room to the next room. 
A fantastic framing paired with some yellow and blue tones completes this great picture.

Corner Desk
Mare Island Naval Shipyard

The Administration Building was construction in 1870, however many modifications have been done since. Here, you can see the drop ceiling and light fixtures.

One another note, I'm really excited to see what +SmugMug has up their sleeve during the unveiling of the new design today!

Abandoned factories are the most fascinating places someone can enter. Just like this one photographed by +Marc Briggs , who managed to preserve all the details in the pipes on the right as well ass on the big boiler on the left, inviting the viewer to just follow all the straight lines until to the center of the picture, where another machine is waiting to be discovered in this bright light falling from the left.

Institutional green inside this abandoned psychiatric hospital, like probably in all hospitals around the world, so the second peeling paint from today is green, brought to us by +Jose Vazquez , who managed to capture a golden ray of light in this long forgotten room, pointing the viewer straight to this sideboard wondering if there is still something in it. The closed drawers are in contrast to the wide open doors of the closet .

Peeling
A room in an abandoned psychiatric hospital with little left but the peeling paint on its walls and a few other random items.

Hello and welcome to #tuesdecay  , the day of the peeling paint.
Starting today with a picture from an old castle known as the "red castle" ,unfortunately someone painted the beautiful walls inside this former hotel completely in red, so the first peeling paint of today is .. red. 
+christian richter played here with a very interesting perspective and the few colours available , red, blue and green, putting them together in a harmonic way.

The wonderful colours of decay by +Amy Heiden  In this long corridor where the ceiling is falling apart and the doors are hanging loose.
The light shining soft through the doors giving the scenery a wonderful atmosphere.

Corridor inside the Walker Building at Central State Hospital, Georgia. 

The Walker Building was constructed in 1884 for male convalescent patients. It remained in operation for 90 years before being abandoned in 1974. Three decades of heat, humidity and rain have taken a toll on the building and the hallways have become a collection of falling plaster, moldy walls and stale air.

The peeling paint on this colourful way down to a more quiet place by +Rene Schmidt, makes me simply ask for a door, another good example on how houses were build in the past.
The straight lines in this well framed picture guiding the viewer down to the subject of this picture, the toilet, where a window lights up the main subject to invite you to sit down for a while ....

When nature takes back the man made industry, than the walls of a factory will be covered in green again . 
An example of the power of the nature can be seen in this well made HDR photo  by +Rene Bechard

This is The Peters Cartridge Company in Kings Mills, Ohio. This incredible location was built in the 1860s. It manufactured bullets and cannonballs for the civil war! (Union Army)
